The series of black and white photographs War From My Window is a bold comment on the bloody conflicts in Georgia after the declaration of independence in 1991. Over a period of twelve days, the artist photographs the combat in the centre of his hometown, Tbilisi, from his window. Displayed as a filmstrip and presented as a story, the smoke of the bombs creates an alienating contrast with the seemingly calm, indifferent neighbourhood.
